Developers Canderel Residential and Cadillac Fairview have announced plans to connect Tours des Canadiens 2 (TDC2) and Tours des Canadiens 3 (TDC3) across Saint Antoine Street to the Bell Centre and Deloitte Tower located in the heart of downtown Montreal. To be known as the Quad Windsor Skybridge, the pedestrian link will also connect users to the city's extensive underground path system (RÉSO) and to the future REM (Réseau express métropolitain).
The Skybridge will be over 200 feet long, and will be suspended more than 20 feet above street level. Made of steel and glass, the structure will be highly transparent, to be illuminated by Ombrages, a leading lighting design and engineering firm, for maximum visibility.
While TDC2 (above) is all but complete, work has only begun on TDC3 (below). Visible in both renderings, the future Skybridge can be made out, both towers located adjacent to Ville-Marie Park, a popular piece of green space in the centre of the city.
Together, the new towers together with the Bell Centre, and Ville-Marie Park will create an entire new downtown neighbourhood. Furthering this perception, the planned inclusion of 15 luxury townhomes at the base of TDC3 will greatly enhance the desirability of the area, bringing family-friendly living to the core.
SkyriseCities will be sure to return to these interrelated projects as progress continues, for more information, check out their associated Database files and Forum threads, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
